It’s summer and time for some vacation, finally. This year has been hard work so far – and I don’t expect it to get lighter this upcoming autumn and winter. I’ve had fun though!
Microsoft SharePoint has really been one thing occupying my work – it feels like everyone is not just looking at SharePoint, they want to use it now! We have a couple of cases that is really interesting and I hope that I have convinced them and proposed a nice solution.
About half a year ago, I predicted about 2008, half of them has come true; Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Internet Explorer 8 (only beta so far), nice parental leave (you bet) and OOXML ISO approval (not quite there yet, but anyway's).
Some things are yet to come, I hope; XPS submittal to ISO, time over for msfeedicon (sorry about all you out there waiting for it – but I have some plans…), testing new Media Center (this one could come true any day, Fiji is in private beta) and upgrading customers to Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008.
I would like to add some new things to the list; Townsquare (this could really turn the heat up), PDC 2008 (I really hope I can go there) and Windows 7 beta (or as it might turn out to be Windows Vista R2).
That’s all for me for now, don’t expect to much blogging over the next few weeks…
